For the 29th year in a row, the ecology class (Bio. 237) went up Whiteface Mountain to look at how and why the composition and structure of the forest changes with elevation. The 23 students on the Oct. 7 trip were led by Associate Professor of Biology Bill Pfitsch and Ernest Williams, the William R. Kenan Professor of Biology.

 

In addition to studying the forest, the group examined alpine vegetation at the summit, saw firsthand the effects of rime ice on tree growth, and saw spectacular fall colors.
